Abstract

An array of NiFe nanodots has been prepared on a Cu/CoFeAl film. Since a thermal spin current is expected to be excited owing to a large spin-dependent Seebeck coefficient for the CoFeAl, we investigate the magnetization dynamics of the NiFe dots under the temperature gradient along the vertical direction. By using vector network analyzer measurements, we have demonstrated that the temperature gradient produces modulations of the frequency of ferromagnetic resonance and the linewidth of the resonance spectra. The observed parabolic dependences are well explained by the damping-like and field-like components of spin transfer torque.
